Lovely pair !!

I am getting ahead of myself with this card - It's for my hubby, for our anniversary which isn't until July !
This is very unusual for me I usually scrap about the night before I need a card - esp if it's for a boy - I hate making cards for the opposite sex !!

Having said that I really enjoyed making this card which is largely down to the fab sketch over at card patterns this week. This one is def going into my craft cupboard to be used again - I LOVE IT.

The card blank is made from bazzill basics card and all the other papers are from Cosmo cricket - early bird - one of my favorite paper packs at the moment - who am I kidding I have so many favorites !
The digi stamp is from Pink petticoat and I coloured it with my Sakura glaze pens.

The wooden heart buttons are from stash - I diecut the number 10 with my bigshot as it will be our 10th anniversary this year (wow that 10 years has flown by).
I used my computer to generate a sentiment in a co-ordinating colour.

And that lovely hand stitched swirl was made super easy by using my bazzill stitch template.

I have to say that I am very happy with the result. I hope you like it too x

As well as the card patterns sketch challenge I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - Dear to my heart
Diecut Dreams - Use numbers
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - One for the boys
Cowgirls Sunday Challenge - 1 digi image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments (2 buttons and 1 gem)

Hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend and at least we have a shorter week until the next weekend rolls round !

((hugs)) Suzie xx
